Except it really was just about 1 rich guy trying to make it stop. Only a very small percentage of the fan base appeared to actively detest the chant to the point of wanting the goal song changed. I never heard a devils fan, before the new owner came in, say that he/she wished rnr2 would be removed (aside from the pedo crap). Our society is so full of debate debate debate that everything just has to have two equal amounts of proponents to an issue. So it appears that the anti you suck ppl are in greater numbers than they actually are.
I don't really care about the chant and in fact I've partaken in it many times. But it's clear on this message board that there is a significant enough portion of the fan base who have asked that it stop and so I defer to their wishes.
When a significant enough amount of people have a problem with something and it's within reason, it's easier and better for everybody to just stop doing it. When people refuse, I'm glad ownership stepped in and did something about it.
